an army and drive the english out of france. so her actions are based on her faith in her voices. shaw was a co-director for the first london production in 1924 with sybil thorndike in the title role, and he reminded her that joan was a sturdy, independent 19-year-old woman, not a sweet angelic little girl. the story of joan is fascinating. she was a village girl born in the early 1400s, a warrior in her teens and was accused of heresy and witchcraft because she would not deny her visions and voices and consequently was convicted and burned at the stake. almost 500 years later, joan was canonized by the church. shakespeare, bertolt brecht, maxwell anderson and jean anouilh all have dramatized the joan story, each reflecting a personal point of view and interest. to meet the challenge of that role required a special actress. our guest is that special actress who met the challenge, made theater history with her interpretation of joan in jean anouilh's the lark and remains an outstanding interpreter of the heroic maid of orleans, julie harris. george bernard shaw's saint joan is a g

would set her up in a country house in france with horses and stables and servants and beautiful furniture, that was not a guarantee of exclusive access. this was the era when men had mistresses that were flaunted. certainly rich men always had mistresses who were flaunted. and she was. and men all over europe were more than delighted to spend what time with her they could. she was, for example, kept for a while by a german, alfred kieprert, who when his family forced him to give her up through legal action, gave her a parting gift of what would now be $220,000. so this was a liddy who lived high. and spent every dime she ever got. a later lover actually squandered most of her $220,000 gift, but that was part of the game. there was always more money, there was always another gentleman. in 1914 she had been at the top of theater stage in europe for almost ten years. there were many other people who suddenly began doing oriental dances in imitation of her. she was scathing of them. there was what was regarded as the battle of the tights in germany between -- sorry, in vienna, betwe

branch of the family came from the red-brick city of albi in the south of france. henri grew up in a world of chateaus and privilege in a family living on the fruits of its noble past. but a france governed by the middle class was losing its taste for nobility. like many aristocrats, his father alphonse retreated into rural pastimes-- riding and hunting. an eccentric, he looked wistfully back to the family's glorious past. alphonse had married his first cousin adele, a common practice in a class anxious to preserve the purity of its bloodlines. but the results of inbreeding for henri were uncommonly cruel. his legs were short and weak. he broke each of them in early adolescence and stopped growing when he was 14. he was just under five feet tall. his head, hands and torso continued to develop. but his stunted legs made walking painful for the rest of his life. denied the aristocratic pleasures of riding and hunting, henri turned to sketching and painting rural scenes. he had a flair for it and in 1882, at the age of 18, he moved to paris to study painting. it was a move that would ch

european commission rejected france's argument that the imports have rapidly increased since the free trade agreement between the eu and south korea went into effect in july last year. france said its imports of south korean cars in january and february, were up about 50% from a year earlier. but the commission said that the french request was based on short term statistics. the commission said eu imports of south korean cars rose 41% in the first year after the fta took effect. it said the figure for france was 24%. the eu executive body said the eu is importing fewer south korean cars than it did before the global financial crisis began in 2008. it concluded the current situation does not require monitoring. france called the commission's decision regrettable. it said a free trade deal should preserve the interests of the domestic industries of signatory nations. france suggested it will request tough conditions when the eu starts talks with japan for an economic partnership agreement. >>> facebook executives announced they're in the red for the second straight quarter. business exp

zones. it's my favorite home base from which to explore france's provence region. twice a week, arles' ring road erupts into an open-air market of flowers, ready-for-ratatouille baskets of produce, and everything but car traffic. join in, try the olives, sniff that lavender of provence. the beauty of this market is its international flavor, reflecting how provence remains a crossroads of mediterranean cultures -- paella from spain, fragrant mint leaves for tea, spices from north africa. the market feels a little like a bazaar thanks to the many algerians and moroccans who call arles home. throughout france, but especially here in the south, muslim north africans, from france's former colonies, have come to pick olives, harvest fruit, and so on. while they are integrating, france is dealing with the friction any country has when immigrant laborers do its lowliest jobs. the most dramatic remnant of roman arles is its arena. imagine the roar of the fans packing this place nearly 2,000 years ago, as gladiators battled wild animals. the floor was covered with sand to absorb all the blood.
